DJ SWAN-E

Swan-E is, undeniably one of the most respected DJ’s on the circuit, whose profile has always remained as underground as the scene in which he so splendidly works.

DJ Swan-E started DJing in the late eighties in and around London, the surrounding counties as well as a residency in Tenerife. By 1990/91 Dj Swan-E was spinning up and down the country championing the early breakbeat sound. At the end of '91 Swan-e had hooked up with the band UB40 and got involved with Rough Tone Recordings. Releasing one of the first jungle tracks titled Ruffneck Business which kicked off a succession of releases on the label including tracks like Prophecy to Dj Rons Crackman.
By mid '93 DJ Swan-E was being booked at all of the main events like Dreamscape, Fantazia, Amnesia, Helter Skelter and Desire etc, pioneering the jungle sound as well as venturing across Europe in countries like Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain and Greece.
In '94 Swan-E linked with Ellis Dee and started their own label titled Collusion Records. With 18 single releases and 1 album, Collusion became recognised as one of the leading jungle labels within the scene. Over the next couple of years Swan-e and Ellis took the label on a UK tour with artists who appeared on the label.

This tour proved to be successful and was extended to Europe, Australia and the America as well as Radio 1 and Kiss FM and other radio stations around the globe.
In '98 Swan-E and Ellis decided to go their own way due to musical differences. Ellis went with the Nu-School breaks and Swan-E with the Drum and Bass sound.
By mid '99 Swan-e and his long time friend the bass player from Ub 40 Earl Falconer set up the Drum and Bass label Maximum Boost. This label was set up at the Dep international studio s {the home of Ub40}, based on using well known worldwide artists. To this day Maximum boost is on its 19th release and has used artists like Ruby Turner, Robert Owens, Shades of Rhythm, Capleton and the award winning Lady Saw as well as producers like Swan-e, Futurebound, Danny C, Rascal and Klone, Dope Ammo and Undacut.
From 2000 - 05 Swan-E has been travelling the world spinning the freshest tracks from the worlds finest D&B producers, playing at some of the biggest events across the globe spreading the Maximum Boost vibe
